While organizing my school year, I’m compiling a list of must-read books about Abraham Lincoln for homeschoolers. We are starting our school year out with Abraham Lincoln, and going all the way through modern times.

We plan to watch some YouTube videos and documentaries while adding in some lap booking and notebooking. (Customizing my History curriculum has worked so much better for us. I will be creating a post that contains all our homeschool plans for Modern History, too. Be on the lookout!)
